Reanimating the Planet – and Cables

February 19, 2017

Without considering the context, most web designers these days recommend prohibiting what’s called “deep linking,” where you link directly to a page deep within a website.  Instead they allow only linking to a website’s home page, forcing you to search – too often in vain – for the page you want.  The reason they do this, is to get you to stumble onto other pages of interest, hoping to sell you more via “impulse buying.”  Recommending this for websites that aren’t selling anything is simply stupid.  Yet time and again I’ve seem web “designers” follow their textbooks and do this, and their clients out of naïveté follow their advice.

I don’t know whether http://www.jeshua.net/ got and took this advice, but the website doesn’t allow deep linking.  Fortunately there are transcribers who copy this material into deep-linkable websites such as…

https://eraoflight.com/2017/02/15/the-earth-body-and-soul/#more-22404

Though they don’t always make it very clear that the material isn’t theirs.  On this page, “Pamela Kribbe channels Earth” in a powerful Meditation…

I am the voice of the Earth.  I carry you in my body.  The planet on which you live and walk is my body, the expression of my soul.  You are welcome here because you are part of my body.  Your body is part of me, made of earthly matter.  Be very aware of the cells in your body, which are very small, independent entities that know exactly what they are supposed to do.  They work toward balance and harmony and cooperation in your body.

“Imagine that you are present as a brilliant sun in your body.  Your light is not of the Earth; you come from the cosmos.  You are a living soul who is able to take on various forms and now you are present in an earthly form.  Imagine that the light of your soul radiates in the center of your body, the center close to your heart.  See a light burning there and remember who you are: you are aeons old.  You have had many lives; you are not here for the first time.

Remember who you are!  Know that you are independent of this body, of this life, and of the society around you.  You have come here to bring something new, something unique, something not quite understood by those around you.  It takes courage and daring to bring in what is new, because new things cause resistance.  That is why it is so important to remember who you are: your freedom, your independence.  Only then can you really be yourself in this reality and spread your light.

“I now ask you, from that which is your heart, to connect the light of your soul with all your body cells, which have their own individual consciousness, yet which are part of me, the Earth.  Imagine that the light of your heart, your soul, joins to the consciousness of all your body cells.  Your light shines into all your cells, and your cells respond with joy.  This is what they want – they want to be inspired by you!  This is their goal; this is their function.

“Maybe you think that the aim of your body cells is simply to maintain your body so it can function and survive; and on some level, that is true, but not on the deepest level.  Your highest purpose here on Earth is to provide an instrument through which your soul can manifest itself; that is what your body is for.  So connecting your soul with your body awareness is extremely important.  Your entire body is undergoing a transformation that cannot be explained on a material level.

“Now imagine that the light from your divine core spreads slowly from your heart and touches all your cells in a tender way: in your chest and shoulders, and throughout your neck and throat.  Then allow all the cells in your head to be touched by your soul’s energy and to take it in so they are able to get direction and guidance from the divine Source.  Allow your soul’s energy, the light of your heart, to then stream through your solar plexus, your belly, and down through your abdomen, and feel for a moment the center of your abdomen.  There may be old emotions still there, or resistances against life that make it difficult to allow in the light of your soul: ‘Is this safe?  May I really be here with my unique energy, my light?’

“See if your soul’s light can penetrate into your stomach, your tailbone, your pelvis.  If you feel places there that offer resistance, that do not allow in the light, just observe that happening and do not force anything.  Just see if there is a dark spot or a tense place somewhere in your body where the energy is somewhat constricted and concealed.  With a very accepting and open gaze, concentrate your attention on that spot of heaviness.  Your consciousness is very soft and pliable, and as a soft breeze, surround that spot with your attention.

“Inside that blocked energy, there is life that has been hidden away for a variety of reasons.  Encourage that life to make itself known to you.  Ask the question: ‘Who are you?  Don’t be afraid of me, show yourself.’  See if something appears to you: an image, a symbol; it can also be an animal or a human being, or maybe a child.  Everything that is blocked and hidden in a person wants out, wants to be free; but it is afraid, which is why it is hiding at times.  To be able to reach it, you need not force anything; it is enough to be gently present and to listen.  To not want to change anything, to not wish to get rid of this part, is the most helpful approach.

“So calmly see or sense what wants to reveal itself from that dark part. Imagine that you reach out your hand to what appears and you reassure it by telling it: ‘You are good; you are allowed to be who you really are.’  You welcome this part of yourself by taking responsibility for your energy, by promising that you will work with it.  Because in all this clogged and blocked energy there is also a strength, a capability that belongs to you.  It should never be the intention only to make a blockage or a problem disappear.  It is about transforming and releasing old energies, and so thoroughly that the core of light within you can join with it.  That is why love is the way, and not struggling with negative energies or problems that are in you, but loving them.

“Finally, let the light of your soul flow all the way down from your pelvis to your thighs and your upper legs, and give especial attention to your knees.  Imagine that the cells of the bones in your knees open up for the light from your heart.  Remember how joyful it can be to live and be active on the Earth, so retrieve those memories of joy.  Then let your light descend farther into your calves and your ankles, and fully into your feet: into your heels, the soles of your feet and your toes.

Entrust the light of your soul to the Earth.  I am here for you; you are welcome in and on me.  You do not have to go it alone.  The more you allow your soul’s light to be here, the more you are protected and carried by your own wisdom and by your connection to me, the Earth.  I salute you from my heart and want to thank you for your presence here and now.”

When I did this Meditation I found it Exhilarating except for several spots of Tension in the back of several Chakras.  When I asked “Who are you?” several Cables from a deceased parent and an old Relationship appeared.  Without reading the Meditation further, I reverted to my old Training and dealt with the Cables using old techniques of carefully working the fishhook-like cable ends out of my back, and handing them back to the virtual figure of the person who put them there.  One of them was easy, the other was difficult because the Cable-installer wasn’t working alone, but as part of a Doctrine or Lineage.

Gurus can seek Power rather than Healing per se for legitimate Healing purposes – for instance, when the Follower’s Challenges are with their Ego.  The Ego is the seat of Power in the Psyche, and in Response to Abuse the Ego may have Vowed Never to Surrender.  Some Gurus specialize in the Power Struggles which result when such a Follower Asks them for Help in working toward their Liberation.  And some “Gurus” of course seek Power for the sake of Power.  It can be difficult to tell the difference, but in general if the Guru Blesses you when you Psychically Intend to Stand as their Equal, it’s a good sign.

Many Gurus establish a Doctrine or Lineage, so their Followers can become Teachers in their stead when they leave the Physical, or so they can spread their Work farther than they could do alone.  Kind of a Spiritual or Pseudo-Spiritual equivalent to “Branding.”  So their Followers can Cable you as an agent for the Guru or the Guru’s supra-personal Lineage – the Guru need no longer be in Physical form.  Those Cables can be trickier to remove, because they were placed by agents for “Professionals,” rather than by Amateurs.  In either case there’s a good chance that the Cables will be put back once you divert your Attention.

In general, Cables are installed as Defensive measures, not installed for Evil Intent.  They are usually set Unconsciously through Insecurity or Parental or Religious “Prerogative,” or all of the above.  So while removing Cables Relentlessly is appropriate, removing them Ruthlessly or Angrily may create backlash.

Then I read more of the Meditation…

To be able to reach it, you need not force anything; it is enough to be gently present and to listen.  To not want to change anything, to not wish to get rid of this part, is the most helpful approach.  “So calmly see or sense what wants to reveal itself from that dark part. Imagine that you reach out your hand to what appears and you reassure it by telling it: ‘You are good; you are allowed to be who you really are.’  You welcome this part of yourself by taking responsibility for your energy, by promising that you will work with it.  

“Because in all this clogged and blocked energy there is also a strength, a capability that belongs to you.  It should never be the intention only to make a blockage or a problem disappear.  It is about transforming and releasing old energies, and so thoroughly that the core of light within you can join with it.  That is why love is the way, and not struggling with negative energies or problems that are in you, but loving them.”

Hmm, sounds like we might be opening to Forbidden Genii – or certainly to the Forbidden, to Limitation.  Excellent advice.  All right!  More Work to be Done!  Hopefully from the Perspective of…

January Week 3 End – Big Doin’s

January 19, 2017

Whew, made it through the Ixion-Juno Initiation last night, but not without Tapping and Thetaing and Poor-Sweethearting for most of the night.  Our next Big Event is a Station of dwarf planet Haumea, 4am PST 22 January.  Haumea is Pele’s daughter, symbolizing Rebirth – by Fire!  It’s been within one Degree of Sensitivity to this Station since early November, so it’s a big part of what we’ve been Experiencing, as we’ve been trying to get as many of our Unconscious Masters (Archetypes, Karma, and Unfinished Business, O My) wrestled to the Ground so we can get Reborn as Cleanly as possible.

Now that “everything else” Big has gone under the bridge, the Rebirth part takes Center Stage.  Well, almost.  The Reality Show is still about

Bringing our Unconscious Fears Up Into Our Awareness in Order to Reclaim our Self-Sovereignty

for another week or so.  So this Rebirth is kind of a Mid-term in some ways.

By 1 February we’re firmly engaged in Rebuilding a New Timeline or Ego-Lifetime that’s based on Self-Love.

So a Laser Focus on Noticing any Self-Judgment for the next 7-10 days will pay big dividends.

Self-Judgment includes any Values you have that are Moral, or based on Either/Ors.  As Alan Watts informed us,

It’s Harder to Let Go of Good Karma than it is to Let Go of Bad Karma.

And we need to jettison both if we’re going to be able to approximate Self-Love.

Our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.  But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

If we betray our own Standards of Behavior, or fail to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect, we Make Amends and move on.  If we’re in the Habit of indulging Guilt or Remorse or the like (or having a big Reaction when others fail to treat us with Respect, which is just a Mirror for our own Lack of Self-Love), then we need to Change that Habit to Tapping it Out asap so we can get on with the Critically Important Work we’re doing Rebirthing the Planet one Psyche at a time (our own).  What was that Meditation threshold that squelched Crime?  One Percent of the Neighbors Meditating?

There’s a Catch here.  Two days after Haumea’s Station, asteroid Hopi Stations.  Hopi is about Respect for all Things.  Those Sentient Beings we have to Respect?  They don’t just include folks who look like you (regardless of Color).  They include Critters and Plants and Rocks and Dirt and Planets and Stars and anything that your mind is able to Separate from the Background Noise and assign a word to.  Oh, and the Background Noise is Sentient too, especially the Background Noise.  That’s the Unconscious, Master over most of our Behavior, thought, Emotion, and even our Physiology.

So we can say that again now, with the context more clear: It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.

But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.  How will we every Learn to Love our Pathological Genius otherwise?

Saturn, The Most Important Thing, is only three weeks and less than two Degrees away from being Initiated by Ixion, our Forbidden Genius.  

Meanwhile, the Great Amplifier Jupiter is only two weeks and a third of a Degree shy of its Station, and less than two Degrees from Haumea.  In other words this isn’t any ordinary Molt of our Identity exoskeleton (Haumea is Stationary twice a year after all), but a Big Rebirth.  And you might notice that Sedna, our Emissary of Fear as a Gift Reminder to Embrace ourself, is Stationary along with Jupiter.

So we have a Choice here.  We can be Reborn into Big Fear, or we can be Reborn into Big Love.  We Choose the latter by hunting down our Unconscious Fear with a Searching and Fearless Inventory, then Loving our Fear into Submission.

It’s a safe bet that most or all of our Judgments have their roots embedded deep in Fear.  So if you aren’t Scared this week and next, start Examining your Judgments.  What Unconscious Fears stand behind those?  That includes our “positive” Moral Judgments – “I’m Good because I…” – what Fears stand behind those?  What would happen if you chose Yintegrity  or Self-Trust instead of “Good”?

This is what we took Birth for, and why the Planet is so overpopulated with Beings wanting in on the Action.

In case you’ve lost the bigger plot, Jupiter-Haumea is one corner of the Forbidden-Genius-Recovery Golden Rectangle that encloses our Sedna-Lilith Recovering-Self-Sovereignty-by-Embracing-our-Fear Yin Gate, which is about to morph into a Building-a-New-Lifetime-Based-on-Self-Love Yin Gate.  And of course the huge Yintegrity work we’ve been doing since Time As We Know It Ended in 2012, is another corner of the Golden Rectangle.

I’m blown away by how not just informative, but transformative, the Channeled material is these days.  Look at this…

Many yet remain unaware of who and what they really are or that the energy they radiate effects those around them as well as adding to the universal energy of the planet as a whole.  This is why it is  important to be aware of your thoughts and beliefs or of thinking that your thoughts are hurting no one if you don’t say them out loud. 

“This is not to say that the serious spiritual seeker can never have a negative thought, for that would be impossible.  Uninvited thoughts that find their way into your head  are impersonal.  Those that align with your personal interests or concerns easily find their way into your thinking because energy always seeks to align with like energy.  A thought could represent the energy of some worry or fear you still carry either consciously or from a past lifetime.
 
“Thoughts that pop into your head are impersonal until you claim them as yours.  This is why there is no  reason to believe you are a spiritual failure if some negative or even violent thought comes floating into your mind when you least expect it.  The clearing process often brings outgrown beliefs and thoughts to the  surface.  No need to react with shock or resistance, simply acknowledge them for what they are, giving them no power, and  moving on.”
 
This is from https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2017/01/15/arcturian-group-message-january-15-2017-marilyn-raffaele/ and I highly recommend the entire message, and the blog.  The original source is

Why Are We Doing This Again?

January 9, 2017

A note from the Arcturians on what all this Shedding is about…

http://danielscranton.com/your-galactic-selves-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

At the end there they mention Off-Planet folks.  Don’t fall for any mass-media reports about Off-Planet folks.  There are those who Believe that once Epidemics and Vaccinations and four-hour erections no longer Scare enough people, the Lizards will cook up an Alien Invasion to amp up their mass-media advertising revenue.  No Blame, it’s just another potentially useful Perspective.

You can speak directly with Off-Planet folks anytime you want – just Suspend Disbelief, PIAVA it, Change the Subject, and Meditate.  You’ll probably meet your Kin, and maybe even remember how you got here.  After all, we just heard from folks who hail from Arcturus.  Arcturus Lives around 25 Libra; got any natal planets there?  Jupiter just happens to be amplifying Haumea (Rebirth) there as we speak.

I know, Suspending Disbelief may be the hardest part, but it’s a very Powerful Practice, and a Skill that you very much want to develop to increase your Embrace of Paradox – which, as you recall, we’re studying intensely at the moment, Embracing our Unconscious Fears, in our Yin Gates.  

If the Channel for Off-Planet information wasn’t ourself, should we Trust it?  Ask your Heart, your Heart knows your own Truth.  Double-check for Fear – if you’re coming from Fear, you aren’t in Truth.  Tap it Out.  Don’t let commercial television – or the Internet – be your intermediary, and be careful to read or hear Channelings from Off-Planet (or On!) with your Heart, not your Mind.

And a note from Yeshua and Mary about our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity…

https://ouremergingdivinity.com/2017/01/08/direct-voice-channeling-of-yeshua-and-mary-magdalene-by-fran-zepeda-1-7-17/

That’s precisely why we’re doing this.  Thanks to https://eraoflight.com/ for the clues to finding this information.

January, Week 2, Early

January 8, 2017

We are all Perps as much as we are Victims.  We are always In Balance; what Feels Out of Balance is Balanced by the Unconscious.  As a Victim, at the very least we are Perpetrating a toxic Lack of Self-Love upon our Victim Self.  Moving into Balance involves bringing the Unconscious Ballast into Consciousness.  We do that with a Searching and Fearless Inventory of what Frightens us – most especially Death, since most Fears reduce to that – Owning our Fears, and Empathizing with ourselves over them: “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Scared of Death, aren’t you.”

That does two things; it gets us Honest with ourself so we no longer have to Protect ourself against what we Deny and Fear.  And it shifts our “Assemblage Point,” or Identity, from being in Fear to being in Compassion.  Examine the syntax…  

“I am Scared” literally means that Fear and I are Merged as One.

“I Feel Scared” means that I have Separated myself from my Fear far enough that I now Recognize it as an Emotion rather than a Reality.

“You poor Sweetheart, you’re Scared, aren’t you” means that I am now looking back at my (now formerly) Frightened self with Compassion.  You can shorten that last sentence to “I am … Compassion.”

This isn’t wordplay, this is quite Real.

Then we Tap ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 ).  “Even though I’m Frightened by the Idea of Death, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  It’s the same process – your Identity Assemblage Point is shifting from “I am Fear” to “I am Feeling” to I am Self-Love.”  But with Tapping, you’re also programming your Energy Body, as you tap on the Acupressure points at the end of each Meridian.

Note that we took a detour there.  Instead of “Even though I’m Frightened by Death, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself” we said “… I’m Frightened by the Idea of Death …” – which is actually usually the case.  So we go from “I am Fear” to “I am Thinking” to “I am Feeling” to “I am Self-Love.”

The two processes – “You poor Sweetheart…” and Tapping complement one another perfectly.  Tapping is Energy Medicine to calm your Emotions.  Calming your Emotions quiets the Vicious Circle of Thoughts that reinforce your Unpleasant Emotions.  “You poor Sweetheart…” puts you – your Identity, your Psychic Core – in a position to Recover the Abandoned parts of yourself that are Scared.  They’re Scared for good reason – they’ve been Abandoned, Banished.  Except in Primary Cultures where one Learns Self-Reliance as part of one’s Childhood, being Abandoned means Death.

Saying “Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade” to yourself is similar, but starts in the mental.  You’re declaring your Intention (PIAVAing in other words) that your negative thoughts be Canceled, that their Vibration (Energy, Emotion) be Neutralized, and that you be Upgraded (into Self-Love).  Every Prayer is answered, and every thought is a Prayer.  Becoming Conscious of your Self-Sabotaging thoughts is an important part of bringing the Self into Balance so your Perp and your Victim Cancel one another Out like two identical sine waves that are perfectly out of phase ( if you’re interested in the science, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superposition_principle#Wave_interference ).

Helplessness and Powerlessness are Real, and it’s easy to be Victims of Helplessness and Powerlessness.  What is required is that we Be Responsible To – not For – our Helplessness and Powerlessness.

It’s not our Fault – that’s Blame, which is Looking to the Past to assign Fault.  We need to move to Responsibility, which involves Looking at the Future with the Intention of Changing Outcomes.  To be Responsible For something sounds a whole lot like being To Blame for it.  To be Responsible To something means that  we give it our Attention and Obedience.  What does it mean to be Responsible To our Powerlessness?

We can start by switching from “I am Powerless” to “I Feel Powerless.”  From there we can go to “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling Powerless, aren’t you.”  We may never have the Power to Change the World (though that’s debatable), but we always have the Power to Change our Relationship to the World.  Changing ourself is the onliest Power we have.  So we’re never actually Powerless.  

We may have to Break a lot of Habits and Tap Out a lot of Emotions to Create Significant Change, but we have the Power.  We just have to take the first step.  That’s how Habits are Changed, through Repetition, starting with the first step.

As adults, most of the time our Fear of Abandonment (which our Fear of Death usually reduces to) isn’t fully Present Time – though at least in the US, our modern neo-Dickensian Culture is in fact Abandoning us.  Most of our Fear of Abandonment is a regression to the Real Abandonment we Suffered as Children, when we really didn’t have the Skills to Survive on our own, so we had to depend upon our Abusers, even though we loathed our Abuse.

But guess what.  Even though we didn’t have the Power to Change our Abuse or our Abusers, we did have the Power to Change our Relationship to our Abuse, and we did just that.  We numbed out, we went into Denial, we Learned how to put on many of the Masks that we’ve been Taking Off lately.  Denial is a healthy psychological process.  It’s what we do with Overwhelm.  If we don’t have the Skill to deal with it otherwise, we Deny it.  It’s how we Survive, losing a battle but staying Alive to potentially win the war later.

Denial is Power, part of our Skillset.  So is bringing Ballast out of the Unconscious so we can Change our Relationship to it.  We Denied our Abandonment as Children, we Recover our Abandonment as adults, by bringing it into Consciousness where we can Recognize the chain of thoughts and Emotions that feed it, Own them, “You poor Sweetheart…” them, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade them, and Tap them Out.  Not always Easy, but we have to start somewhere.  It requires only Persistence, and our Abandonment is the best Motivation there is for Persistence.

We didn’t mention earlier that before it goes Stationary in a few hours (2am PST 8 January), Mercury sticks a toe back into Sagittarius.  There in the penultimate Degree of Sagittarius, it Conjoins Quaoar (Survival), Pholus (Full Responsibility), and the Galactic Center (Communique from Headquarters) – that’s where it is as I write this.

Another thing I forgot to mention, as by “coincidence” I didn’t notice it till now, is that Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) is still Conjunct Varuna (the Life Force), which has dipped its toe back into Cancer.  So the Mercury Station is Quincunx (Curiosity) to Vesta-Varuna – in some Paradoxical and not-so-Paradoxical ways, our Epiphanies (Mercury Stationary) about Survival and Responsibility (Quaoar-Pholus) are closely Related to Letting Go of our Unconscious Beliefs that are Anti-Life -Beliefs that aren’t Self-Loving.

Remember too that Vesta was a corner of that Grand Quintile (Learning Opportunity) that we’re enjoying today.  So the GQ is…

  • Vesta-Varuna (Rooting out Anti-Life Unconscious Beliefs)
  • Hopi (Respect for All Things – including ourself)
  • Juno-Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis (Recovery of our Abandoned Genius and the Ego Deaths and Expansion of Consciousness that are necessary to get there)
  • Pallas-Venus-OR10-Nessus-South Node (Irruption of Current- and Past-Life Memories of Abuse and the Setting of Boundaries against same)
  • Moon (Authenticity)

We’re Learning about how all of these things are Related.  How long does this Grand Quincunx stay with us?  Well, the Moon is the obvious “weak link,” as moving about half a Degree per hour, it will only stay in the GQ for about half a day (using our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity, plus another three Degrees to traverse the Angle to the Ixion and Nessus Stellia).

But even without the Moon in the GQ, we have four of the five corners of the Pentagram, which makes the Strongest point of the almost-GQ the Vacancy that the Moon temporarily occupies today.  

That position is the Midpoint of Taurus, one of the four Power Points of the Zodiac, aka the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  Prior to our current Precession of the Equinoxes, these were the locations of the four Royal Stars of Persia.  In mid-Taurus Aldebaran, greatest Star of all, heralded the Persian Spring, and signified Success as long as strict Integrity and Honor was followed – our Authenticity corner in the GQ.

Today, post-Precession, the Star Menkar – A Victim of the Unconscious – occupies the Midpoint of Taurus.  I’m not making this up; check Solar Fire or Bernadette Brady!  What a “coincidence,” that [Liberation from] our Victimhood by the Perp in the Unconscious occupies this Location.  The Unconscious is non-Dual; in the Unconscious Victimhood and Liberation from Victimhood are the same Energy, differing only by whether heads or tails is showing.  As Conscious Beings we have the Power to Choose, so I Choose Liberation.

The other “weak link” in the GQ is asteroid Hopi.  As an asteroid, it would normally vacate its position in about two weeks.  But Hopi turns Retrograde on 24 January, so Hopi remains within Sensitivity from December through February at the very least.  There are very slow-moving “planets” in all of the other corners – Varuna, Ixion, OR10, and Menkar, which moves only at the speed of Precession.

The next Big Adventure for this Graduate Course in Liberation from our Archetypes is 12 January, when the Moon crosses Varuna and Vesta.

Power-Under

October 17, 2016

Just in case you (or someone you know, like your kids) haven’t noticed, it’s important to realize that the whole fracas about Trump’s inappropriate Sexual advances isn’t about Sex, it’s about Power.  The best “textbook” I’ve ever read about Power is Starhawk’s Truth or Dare: Encounters with Power, Authority, and Mystery.  She sharply distinguishes Power-Over, which is Trump’s Patriarchic style (on most issues, so far as I’ve seen, not just Sexual issues), from Power-With, which is the Yang-Feminine replacement, which trades Collaboration and Equality for the Patriarchy’s Competition and Hierarchy.

Starhawk doesn’t specifically address what we might call Power-Under – the Learned (and probably also Evolutionary) Skill at “sucking up” to the perpetrators of Power-Over.  In Western Culture, at least in America, most of us have at least some Skill at that, or we’d be long since dead or in jail or both, or racing our Thunderbird off the edge of the Grand Canyon.

Power-Under is still a necessary Skill, when used Consciously.  It becomes self-abuse when used Unconsciously or Compulsively.  We can easily see how raising these issues into Consciousness is part of the Nessus-OR10 Conjunction around Irruption of Unconscious Contents dealing with Abuse and Privilege.

Nessus-OR10 is the focus of a long-lived Finger of God (Pay Attention!) from Varuna (the Life Force) and Makemake (Manifestation).  Venus (Values) makes a Waning Square (Let Go!) to Nessus-OR10 all week, and the Moon (Authenticity, Instinct) completes the T-Square today, 11:30am PDT, exactly as I write this (funny “coincidence,” eh?), plus or minus six hours for impact at three Degrees of Sensitivity.  

Karma (Inertia, Archetypes) Opposes Nessus-OR10 at Halloween – discourage the Trump masks if you can.  ‘Round about election day in the US, Nemesis (Consciousness of Self-Sabotage) makes a Waning Square (Let Go!) to Nessus-OR10.  Our “Saving Grace” is a persistent Sextile (Grace if we take the first step) from Hylonome (Becoming Conscious of and Grieving the Loss of Identification with Archetypes).

In the Trump/Patriarchy case, while it is certainly Abuse to his victims, the Power issue is really about Privilege.

The best “textbook” I’ve ever read about Healing Habitual Power-Under is Ellen Bass and Laura Davis’s The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse.  There’s no way its wisdom is limited to women, however, and the authors’ Workbook specifically includes men.  Leafing through it I can find a dozen quotations that would be perfectly apt, but they’d be pages long.  Bear in mind that Sexual Abuse need not be personal; to find your own True Self you may need to Heal the scar tissue within you from the Abuse your Grandmother endured, and undoubtedly never shared with anyone (“If you tell anyone I will kill you”).  As Native Americans say, we are Responsible to the Seven Generations Before us and to the Seven Generations After us.

After The Courage to Heal, the next step is Julie Henderson’s The Lover Within: Opening to Energy in Sexual Practice, which is only about Sexual Practice in the sense that Everything is really just sublimated Sex, because as Julie makes clear, Sex and the Life Force are the same Energy.  The book is about Boundaries – monitoring your Auric Energy, Learning to modulate the Expansion (Jupiter) and Contraction (Saturn) – and Compression (Orcus?) of your Energy Field.  She mentions Sex – my copy eludes me at the moment, but one particularly Powerful quote you would get if I could find it deals with how Adults react to the natural Sexual Energy of a Child – often Repressively, out of their own Repression.

Yintegrity Rising

June 23, 2016

A reader writes…

I don’t think they are happy with me.  I am not following their tradition and I’m not sure what the impact of that will be, but I don’t care!  I’m not doing what I should, I’m doing what I want.  And that is SO different for me.

“I’ve always been the analyze/plan/execute person.  I do my duty.  I fulfill my promises.  If I commit, I follow through.  Period.  No doubt.  No question.  I guess what you would call “Yangtegrity.”  And it has served me well.  Very well.  For my whole life.

“Over the past…18 months, two years, there’s been a growing resistance to all of it!  I don’t even want to show up half the time!  (I’ve always taught my kids-Showing up is 80% of success.)  My intellect is so confused, my ego is having panic attacks.  Is this moving into Yintegrity?  

“There’s a third part of me that is very calmly standing by, reassuring that we’ll work out a new way of functioning, everything will be fine, the earth will not stop spinning on its axis.  So is that the pressure and fear I’m feeling?  The shift into Yintegrity?”

You bet!!  

And like any Big Change, there’s a hollow space, a gap, where our Olde Ego is in Lackawanna (“I know I’m done for; why should I care?”), and our New Ego hasn’t got its training wheels on straight yet.  So we’re wobbly.  Confusion is good; it’s a reliable sign that we’re Growing.  Anxiety is common, as our Olde Patriarchy-Attuned Egos needed to know what was going on so they could figure out who to Please how, when.

Time for PIAVAs.  “Great Spirit, please help me Trust my True Future so I can Surrender my False Past more comfortably” or the like.  “I wonder where the Hell I’m going, anyway.”  With Saturn Waning Square to Neptune and moving into the Void Space between them, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is Confusion (Neptune).  Neptune symbolizes Confusion when viewing the World through Material Eyes, and Clarity when we shift to Spiritual Eyes.  “Ganeshi, please Remove all Obstacles to Opening my Third Eye.”

 Another timely story…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/2016/06/21/professionautism/

Love the title – ProfessionAutism.  I read it as Professionalism twice before I noticed the Aut.  In another post she says Pluto is on her Moon – I don’t know of any greater Emotional Challenge.  A perfect time to “hang loose,” but not even that is easy under Pluto-Moon.  “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that Ease and Grace fill my Life.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess. … Show me.”

That’s a simplified form of Theta Healing.  Once you say “Show me,” look to see whether your Vision or other Intuitive Sense shows you bathed in Ease and Grace.  If not, look to see what else you need to Command.  Maybe Trust, or Enough to Eat, or just Breathing.

When the World, or your Community, or just your Household or Camp, operates through Yintegrity, the whole World is different.  People do things when they want to, and when someone resents something not being done, it’s up to them to recognize that it’s their job to do.  Or their job to inspire (not require or bully) someone else to do it, maybe as a group project where participation is of course optional – you would join or not because, in the moment, it’s more fun than doing otherwise.  

The Most Important Thing gets done, even if it’s not what you thought was The Most Important Thing.  Between the Waning Saturn Square to Neptune and the next Initiation, Cultures break down.  The next Neptune-Saturn Initiation isn’t until 2026, six years into the Digital Age.  It’s at the Aries Point – Manifestation into (Feminine) Form.  Aries Creates by Instinct, not by having a picture beforehand of the “finished” product.  Creating and “finishing” are two different Universes, with only accidental intersections.

Here’s a picture of it anyway – it’s not a “finished” picture, but a picture of the Yintegrity process unfolding…

I would suggest though, that “The ways in which Other Living Things can speak may also be almost infinite – the truth or a lie, clearly or in riddles, with language or with art.”  We maybe just haven’t heard them yet, till we get our Third Eye – or Ear – Open.  And that Everything is Living.

And, Saturn runs a Gauntlet of Initiations before it gets back to Neptune – Ixion, Pholus, Quaoar, the Galactic Center, Chariklo, Hylonome, Pluto. OR10, and Nessus!  Saturn will be a very different Animal by then, and we will be too.  Sounds like this Gauntlet would be worth a post of its own, eh?

And we didn’t even notice that Saturn was Initiated by the Great Attractor this last February, with an Exposition in May!  The Great Attractor is Headquarters to the Galactic Center – Cosmic HQ.  No wonder it’s been a heavy year so far, as if we haven’t had enough excuses!  We’re being asked to align ourselves with an Energy more Powerful than even Galactic Energy.

Make-Make

June 13, 2016

We have from now till about 7am PDT (on 14 June) to put in our orders, our PIAVAs.  Operators are standing by.  Now that we’ve molted several very thick layers of Limiting Beliefs, we get a window to PIAVA what we didn’t used to Believe we could have or be.

My recommendation is that you Ask for

More layers of Limiting Beliefs to be Lovingly and Gently shed.  

That’ll be a lot more Powerful than PIAVAing some specific thing, it’ll put the astrological Wind at your back, and it’ll prepare you for the rest of the Century.  With the Universe squeezing Denial out of so many arenas (Climate, Economy, Greed, Intimidation, Discrimination, Hatred, to name a few), we’ll need all the Power we can muster.  It will take Miracles, so if we threaten to go into the Future NOT Believing in Miracles, we may as well just go home instead.

If you want to get more specific, Ask for

Any remaining Limiting Beliefs about Other People to be Lovingly and Gently shed.  

Specific folks, sure, but also Other People in general.  If we’re going to make it through this Century’s Ring-Pass-Not, we’ll need to Respect Everyone.

And while we’re at it, let’s go a step further, and Ask for

Any remaining Limiting Beliefs about Other to be Lovingly and Gently shed.  

If we’re going to make it through this Century’s Ring-Pass-Not, we’ll need to Respect All Things.  It’s the Patriarchy that hypnotized us into the Belief that only Hupers have Consciousness.  All Things have Consciousness.  If we don’t recognize that, we can’t enlist their Cooperation in what we need to accomplish.  Animals, Elements, Rocks, Planets, Bugs, Machines, Tools, whatever you can tease out of the Background Haze, it has Consciousness.

And most particularly, the Energy that infuses Everything – Animals, Elements, Rocks, Planets, Bugs, Machines, Tools, etc etc etc – has Consciousness.  Talk to the Moon, to the Wind, to the Soul of a Plant.  Talk to the Devas of Oil and of Carbon Dioxide and Methane.  Get Curious about what they have to say.  This Hubris, that only we are Conscious, is the Number One Limiting Belief that the Patriarchy has cursed us with.  

Transcend it.  Now.

Ask to Learn to recognize when you’ve left Curiosity.  Curiosity, like Love, eschews Judgment.  Judgment kills.  Curiosity and Love Reanimate.  Reanimate the Planet.  It’s up to you.  Every “vote” counts.

The dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) is Stationary (at its Strongest) and turning Direct on the Cusp of Libra on 14 June.  The asteroid Hybris (Hubris) is Stationary and turning Retrograde on 15 June (with Gratitude to our CAO).  

The Hybris-Makemake Cycle is Waxing, between the Trioctile (Making Positive Adjustments now that the New Energy is Permanent) and Biquintile (Learning how to put the New Energy to Work Efficiently) stages.  The New Energy is about How Observation Stops the Flow.  The Cycle began in early November 2013 in the same 1 Libra that the Lilith-Makemake Cycle began in, and the same 1 Libra that Makemake is Stationary in as we speak.
